What Makes These Dolls Unique?
Each miniature doll is one of a kind. I create the wooden dolls one by one; they have hand painted faces and are hand dressed.
The dolls are tiny ranging in size from 7/16” to 13/16” or 1.1 cm to 2.15 cm. They can be displayed in many different ways: as a doll's doll or a doll's doll's doll, a toy or as a decoration on a shelf.
My inspiration for making the dolls comes from nursery rhymes, stories, the seasons… I enjoy making dolls that are on top of their own miniature music box.
- My favorite tools are a toothpick and tacky glue.
- Always give glues and paints enough time to dry.
- Dreams and imagination are the only rules for making miniatures.
